Book Review: Captain Amberton’s Inherited Bride

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this book. I read it in about a day, which is pretty fast for me.
Lance Amberton is trying to do the right thing. He's lost his father and his brother and got injured all in the same week and he's having trouble adjusting.
Violet Harper has been controlled by her father all her life and even in his death, he's trying to marry her off like she's a possession. But if she refuses, she will be penniless.

Both Lance and Violet are attracted to each other, but manage to talk themselves out of thinking the other is attracted to them (the crazy young fools!). There's a maze and a castle and some crumbling walls. The characters are so real, I felt like I knew them.

Loved it. I'm looking forward to reading about Amberton's brother too.

Usual disclaimer, I know the author because we belong to the same professional organisation.

Book review: Married to Her Enemy by Jenni Fletcher

Married to Her EnemyMarried to Her Enemy by Jenni Fletcher

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Having just read a load of regency romances, I thought I’d try something different and read a book with a medieval setting.
Aediva hates Normans (she’s a Saxon). So when big, blonde Norman dude Svend comes crashing into her village, she’s not happy about it. Svend, incidentally, is a Dane and not actually Norman … but to all intents and purposes he is the enemy.

I liked that Aediva is a ‘Saxon wildcat’. Her conversations with Svend are interesting to read.
The medieval setting was really interesting and unusual. I liked that the characters were realistically young too. I really cared for them.
Good characters, great dialogue, interesting setting, lots of fighting with swords… what more could you ask for?

The usual disclaimer applies – I know Jenni Fletcher as we’re both members of the RNA. I took this book out of the library (because libraries are awesome and writers get paid a tiny amount for each book you borrow!). But if you want to buy your own, the links are below.
